Burglar Receives Late-Night Surprise

posted on May 12, 2015

Wallace Hann had already stolen a child’s backpack before breaking into a vehicle under cover one night in Knoxville, Tenn. It was just before 3 a.m. when he was spotted attempting to burglarize the vehicle by Donald Williams, who confronted the 41-year-old Hann and tried to stop him.

But Hann was not to be deterred. And in a move he likely later regretted, he made the mistake of threatening the bystander. At the sign of danger, Williams pulled out his gun and fired. The burglar was hit several times and attempted to flee, but a trail of blood led police straight to the place where he was hiding in the bushes.

Hann is being treated at UT Medical Center. No charges have yet been filed.
